Padley is a diverse organisation providing a broad range of services to people experiencing homelessness in Derby and surrounding areas. We do this through our homeless hostel and daycentre at Padley House on Becket street and our charity shop and head office at the Padley Hub on East Street.
Traditionally, 80% of our funding was provided through contracts and grants with Derby City Council and the NHS, however since 2012 the restructuring of these organisations coupled with massive cuts to public funding has seen the source of our income change completely. In 2016 we became totally dependent on either earning or raising all the funding required to continue providing services to the most vulnerable in our society.
Padley is well supported and much loved by the people of Derby and Derbyshire and it is due to that support along with that from the churches, organisations and businesses that we were able to withstand the massive cuts to contracts and grants which resulted in many other services for the homeless and vulnerable in Derby, closing their doors, creating even greater demand on Padley.
